Initial Review, 6,213 Miles on Tires
April 22, 2012

This is my second set of tires on a car with a problematic (but manufacturer denied) problem for front tire cupping/feathering due to front end geometry/suspension alignment. Orig. bridgestone tires I was able to get 15500 miles before replacing and they were highly overdue with heavy front end rumble due to cupping, backs were also worm although true and required replacement. Differences I have found with these tires vs. the bridgestones... given I live in Ontario... these are useless under 45°F or cooler temps with wet roads. Maybe on a different car in temps that consistantly range 60°-??? you might get better wear... just haven't seen it on my Z, trying to milk late autumn / early spring rides which may have done more hard than good. Rear tires I should be able to get another year? or 6000 miles from, but am considering a whole new set of something else given my disappointment in how fast fronts have worn (with front end set to Man. specs)
